DR. BRETT FRIED, PODIATRIST, FACFAS
Dr. Brett Fried and his twin brother were born and raised by their father in Staten Island, New York. Watching his grandfather deal with diabetes on a daily basis, he quickly learned to appreciate the field of Medicine and eventually attended Medical school at the prestigious New York College of Podiatric Medicine in Manhattan, NY.
After medical school, his residency career started in New York City where his time was spent at four major hospitals: Metropolitan Hospital (Manhattan), Lincoln Hospital (Bronx), Harlem Hospital (Manhattan), and The Podiatric Surgical Clinic (NYCPM, Manhattan). One accomplishment that he is most proud of during that time was his contribution in helping those affected during the tragedy of 9/11. Hundreds upon thousands of NYC firefighters, police officers, members of the armed forces, EMS workers and civilians wounded at Ground Zero came to the medical station in St. Paul’s Cathedral to be treated. Dr. Fried, along with other podiatric/medical specialists, put forth countless hours treating the wounded in the symbolic pew where our first president, George Washington, attended weekly services.
After two years of surgical training in NY, he moved to Smyrna, Georgia. There, he furthered his surgical skills by completing a reconstructive foot and ankle residency program, which was associated with several hospitals and surgical centers in Georgia. During his time there, he took a trip back to NYC to marry his wife, Jessica, who has been with him since college, and has experienced and seen him through this medical journey. They have two sons named Jacob and Tyler, and a daughter named Maddie.
They then headed further south to Florida where his professional podiatric career began with South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers. He is currently on staff at several of the surrounding hospitals including JFK, Palms West, Wellington, and Lakeside Medical Center.
He is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, a Diplomate of the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery, and a Board-certified podiatric surgeon. He also serves on the executive committee of the Palm Beach County Podiatric Medical Association, and is an active member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and the JCC in West Palm Beach. He is fully licensed in the State of Florida.
